I talk a lot about skin care here on my blog and I love sharing new products I haven’t heard of before with all of you. So, today – like any day is especially “special” because I’m sharing a product line that is new to me but something that offers multi-purpose skin care for anyone. BOOM! By Cindy Joseph is the first pro-age cosmetic line designed for women of every generation. This line is built on the principle of celebrating all ages as beautiful and her products don’t intend to “fix” or “cover-up” – but instead, enhance the color, glow and natural radiance of every woman.
Whether you are looking for a minimal and simplistic approach to makeup for that fresh faced look or want to use cosmetics that are made simply and healthy with non-toxic ingredients, or you want to get your skin ready to handle the harsh elements that Fall and Winter can have – this skin care line is definitely worth checking out. Beauty is about natural color, glow, moisture and happiness (joy) so why not try something that can be absolutely fabulous for your skin.
“You don’t have to ‘put on’ your face anymore. You already have one.” – Cindy Joseph
BOOM! By Cindy Joseph is a line that includes a number of multi-purpose beauty products that can be used on cheeks, eyes, lips and elsewhere on the body for a natural look that works for both day and evening, at work or play or something that will quickly become essential to your beauty routine. Her products are perfect and proven to compliment every skin tone, race and generation which helps to dramatically pare down your overstuffed cosmetics bag.
Since I don’t really use foundation unless it’s a special event or I’m looking to really dress up some, I thought this line would fit perfectly in my “natural makeup” look that I’ve been sporting lately. I also love these products because Cindy Joseph worked with friends in Hawaii to create her products. Let me share with you the details of the products I was able to try out and you can decide if it’s something you want to check out for yourself.
BOOMSILK (2 oz. – $21.00 / 4 oz. – $36.00 / 8 oz. – $58.00) is a moisturizer that you can use for your entire face and body. This moisturizer can be applied to delicate skin around your eyes, to your lips, your face and your neck and can also be smoothed over your entire body. When using this product, you are applying only the most protective, safe and healing ingredients to your skin.
Ingredients: BOOMSILK contains only the most beneficial ingredients and nothing more: Purified water, organic extra virgin olive oil, beeswax with propolis and pollen, raw Pupekea wildflower honey, and d-alpha Vit E (no soy).
BOOMSilk feels great on the skin. At first, I thought it was a bit oilier than I would have liked, but once it smooths into the skin, it soaks up into the skin so quickly, it disappears leaving your face and body hydrated and smooth. I truly enjoy using this product and have found that I’m using it often – much more than I had expected. If I had to make a note with regard to ingredients, since I’m a coconut lover myself, I would have loved to see coconut oil used in place of the organic extra virgin olive oil, since it works so well with my skin already.
BOOM Cotton (2 oz – $32.00 / 4 oz – $54.00) is a unique non-oily moisturizer. Your skin will absolutely drink this product up, yet leave no trace of oil or shine on the skin. Your skin will be left with a gorgeous healthy glow and feel quenched and moisturized. But, this non-oily moisturizer can also be used on your entire body. And, like the BOOM Silk and the rest of the products from BOOM, it is handmade in small batches by bee keepers in Hawaii. Boom Cotton is organic and pure. There are no emulsifiers, binders, parabens, phthalates, colors or perfumes in the formulation. Boom Cotton is also cruelty free and gluten free.
Ingredients: BOOM COTTON contains only the most beneficial ingredients and nothing more: Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis), Organic Witch Hazel Extract, Organic Beeswax, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Wilelaiki (Christmas Berry) Honey, Vitamin E Oil (Tocobial Liquid)
This moisturizer is probably my favorite out of all the products I’ve tried, and I do enjoy them all – but there is something about this one. The texture of this product is quite odd, but interesting. When applied to the skin, it feels light and almost cooling. This product will be perfect for year round to help sooth dry skin or great to apply during the summer when it’s hot, because it just feels so cool and calming on the skin. I love this and if you can only try one product from the line, I highly suggest this one.
BOOM Touch (2 oz. – $28.00) is something for those sensual beings. Women of every age can now enjoy using a safe product that enhances sensual pleasure while providing extra lubrication. This product naturally enhances sensation, is safe to use internally and to ingest and it doesn’t include any additional scent of flavor. It offers long lasting lubrication. The benefit of this cream vs other products for vaginal lubrication is that it is natural and therapeutic. The olive oil is a great natural lubricant and the bee propolis contains the anti-bacterial effects that normal vaginal fluid provides prior to menopause. With repeated use, BOOM Touch decreases vaginal irritation and inflammation while providing lubrication. Gynecologists recommend BOOM Touch, so I highly suggest checking with yours to see if he/she has heard of it.
This product includes the same pure ingredients as BOOM Silk, with less honey! It will eliminate any concern for those prone to vaginal yeast infections and it’s safe for women of every age.
Ingredients: Purified water, organic extra virgin olive oil, beeswax with propolis and pollen. No extra packaging. No animal testing. No parabens or phthalates.
I know it’s a lot of information to soak up here and some of this stuff may be a bit TMI for your liking. But, we all know I like to keep it 100 here – so I wanted to share this with all of you too. This product is not sticky and provides long lasting lubrication. I do not like to use it often, but when I need to have a little more lubrication down (well, you know where), this product works for me.
“It’s about women, it’s about beauty, it’s about time!”
BOOM Mask (2 oz. – $42.00 / 4 oz. – $56.00) is a deep penetrating facial mask that will nourish and heal your skin while naturally and gently pulling impurities from your pores. This mask is a rejuvenating, cleansing, and nurturing facial mask made from all natural and organic ingredients. There are no man made chemicals, fillers, Sodium Laurel Sulfate, parabens, pthalates or fragrances. BOOM Mask is handmade by the bee keepers on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii. They use raw Hawaiian wildflower honey, organic diatomaceous earth, French pink clay, Hawaiian blue green algae, royal jelly and propolis.
Ingredients: Propolis: A natural antiseptic which eliminates unhealthy bacteria. It’s nutritive value also feeds and nourishes your skin leaving it beautiful, radiant, and healthy. Honey: A natural antibiotic which also hydrates the skin. Diatomaceous Earth: Gently exfoliates, removing dead skin cells which smooths and tones your skin. French Pink Clay: Detoxifies and cleanses the skin. Hawaiian Blue Green Algae: Enhances skin elasticity. Royal Jelly: Nourishes your skin with vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
I honestly wasn’t sure that I would like the mask when I first tried it. But, I love a mask that I can apply a light layer onto my skin and it does the job. I didn’t have any sensitivities or flare ups and my skin felt smooth, looked bright and felt clean but moisturized. I definitely think this mask is nice and worth checking out. The color is a tad bit off-putting, I’m used to green, gray or black masks, but it’s still fun – I think of it as chocolate for the face.
The BOOMStick Trio (Glo, Glimmer and Color – $76.00, 8 grams each tube) is a fun little collection of cream treats for your skin. These three creams are all you need to give your skin that dewy, radiant, colorful look of joy. It’s literally a whole cosmetic bag in just three easy to use sticks. Use these for lipstick, eye shadow, skin luster, highlighter and moisturizer for the eyes, face, lips, cuticles and more. These colors are formulated to blend perfectly with every skin tone. This set is a great value and makes a great gift. If purchased separately – you will pay $81.00 vs the cost of $76.00 for the trio.
These sticks are little multi-taskers for the cosmetic bag. I love the BOOM Glo for use as a cuticle moisturizer or used on the lips. The BOOM Glimmer makes a really pretty soft and natural highlight and BOOM Color blends out gorgeously to add a natural flush of color on your skin. Each product leaves your skin looking naturally flushed and pretty and it’s the perfect trio for busy women who want a little color and pretty without putting on a lot of makeup. These can be used all over the body, including your lips and eyes, so I make sure to use a makeup brush when applying to different areas or clean fingers so that I’m not contaminating the tube.
Also, don’t let the BOOM Color fool you. While it does have a rich burgundy look to it, it blends out to create the perfect shadow look and flushed color for any skin tone. Apply as much or as little as you need to create the look you desire.

I love cosmetics, I love makeup and all the colors they offer and every single thing in between… but I’m a believer that while I do enjoy the pretty and sparkly things – I love natural beauty on me as well. Society dictates beauty on many levels and many times it’s superficial. With teenage girls dealing with their own personal issues of self esteem and women in society struggling to find their groove, I love that a cosmetic and product line offer products like these to enhance what is already gorgeous and natural beauty.
This line initially was designed for the Baby Boomers (ages over 45), but I think it would be a wonderful line for anyone who loves great and simple skin care or products. I love how easy each product is to use and the price point is reasonable. When you think about your cosmetic or makeup routine, skin care routine or just your every day life, could you use a little simplistic approach to things. Like I said before, I love the pretty things that the makeup industry offers, but as we get older, less is more sometimes and since I’m 36, I’m always looking for preventative products as well as great ones to help me on my journey. I love looking natural and these are definitely products I think I’ll enjoy for years to come. I love BOOM! products so much I’m picking up a few sets for my loved ones, my mom and mother in law will surely enjoy them and so will other friends and family members. These will make great gifts for sure.
